Yes, and it looks like I'll have to take the front off again to replace the bulb!And you have only just had the front off the other day.. oh well keep you out of mischief..
Ok, thank you; went to Halfords on my way home today, headlight bulbs purchased. Will put them in at the weekend if it doesn't rain.pretty sure it's the bulb, seen it a lot in my time in trade
Ok, thank you for the advice, I'll double check what's in ours .the 501 may be a blessing in disguise my scenic is listed as 501 sidelights but actually has halogen BAX9S H6W 433C 434 6W , there are different versions pin arrangements and wattages, so best to take out to check
Brendan W, You're spot on! I took the bulb out today and here it is, the filament centre section had broken off and was rolling around inside the glass. Tapping the unit must have started it arcing across the gap!Could be a poor connection or if that's a filament bulb, the filament could be broken and dangling in space. A tap gets it swinging and it reconnects, for a while.
Well done that man.. I think that front end has been off so often in the last few weeks you could do it blindfolded and with one arm tied behind your back..
